triple j have today announced the new host of their beloved House Party program, with Ebony Boadu taking over the role.
Of course, while fans of KLP’s weekly bangers were undoubtedly heartbroken, sadness soon turned into curiosity, as legions of triple j fans wondered who would be taking over the role of House Party host.
Now, we have our answer.
Announced today, triple j have revealed that 23-year-old hip hop and dance aficionado Ebony Boadu is set to be the new host of the iconic program.
Growing up in Western Sydney, Ebony revealed that her parents’ Afrobeat and reggae collections (as well an addiction to Guitar Hero) helped to shape her musical taste. Likewise, after years spent listening to Nina Las Vegas host House Party back in the day, a strong connection to electronic music soon formed.
Applying for FBi’s Dance Class (a mentorship program where young women learn to DJ and present radio) in 2016, Ebony soon found herself with hosting spots on FBi Radio, SBS and MTV. Before long, she became a fixture on the Aussie music scene, bumping jams at iconic events such as Splendour In The Grass, This That, Spilt Milk, and Falls Festival.
